Salesforce is looking to add to its identity and access management offering by acquiring start-up Toopher. Financial details were not disclosed.
CRM software giant Salesforce is acquiring Toopher, an Austin, Texas-based startup firm that has developed a two-factor authentication tool that allows its customers to log into different Web services.
Toopher announced the deal on its website on Wednesday, April 1. However, neither Toopher nor Salesforce disclosed financial details of the acquisition.
In the statement posted on Toopher’s website, the company acknowledges that it would no longer sell its current products, but noted the company’s “commitment to your security” would live on.
